    Creaky/squeaky suspension in 2019 Model X

    My Model X sounds like an old man! Very loud creaking/squeaking at slower speeds, over speed bumps, or any texture in the road where the suspension engages. It also makes that noise when turning the steering wheel. This started happening about two weeks ago. I assume I need to take it into...

    Squeaky rear suspension, out of warranty Tesla

    Hi, last week I noticed noise coming from my rear suspension passenger side. My car is 2019 Model 3 and sadly just out of warranty (50,200 miles!).

    22MYP Suspension Upgrade third party or new 23 comfort suspension?

    I’m about to pull the trigger on a suspension upgrade, the post winter potholes here in WNY are brutal. I’ve been doing a good amount of research and I’m leaning towards the 23 “comfort” suspension because it is by far the cheapest option. Some videos on YouTube seem a bit “influenced” so I...

    UK - Wanting to test drive ‘comfort suspension’.

    After a depressing look at other manufacturer’s hybrid and BEV offerings I found myself (somewhat unexpectedly) in a Tesla showroom interested in a MYLR. No MYLR was available so I test drove a MYRWD - which was ‘interesting‘ - but ultimately I had to walk away because of the vision-blurring...

    Car shaking back and forth, head hitting headrest

    When driving on concrete highways, the car starts rocking back and forth on the joints and my head hits the headrest. It’s a really annoying and uncomfortable ride. I haven’t noticed the same problem on asphalt highways. The car also is very rough over bumps. The suspension on my model Y feels...

    Loud Suspension Thump at Low Speeds or Sharp Turns

    I am having an issue with my Tesla Model 3 where a loud "thunk", "clunk", or "thump" sound is coming from my suspension or wheel area (I think). Whenever I am at relatively low speed and making a sharp turn, or sometimes when I'm at an incline and going up a small ramp (like a parking garage) is...

    Cracking noise around front left wheel (with video), SC says normal trim noise?

    Hi: My 2019 M3 AWD is developing a disturbing cracking sound around front left wheel / fronk / suspension area. I've been having this concern over the last half year, went to service center twice, and they said it's "normal interior trim noise as vehicle gets older". I've attached a short video...

    As per the title- I've spent a few hours looking around trying to get a model y, new or used, that has the new suspension and ultra sonic sensors. Am I looking for something that doesn't exist? Or should I not worry about the loss of the USS or the new suspension and get one?

    Squeaking Suspension Over Bumpy Roads

    We took delivery of our Performance Y in May. Last month, when going over any slightly bumpy surface at 40mph+, it developed this high pitched squeaking. Sounds like it coming from the drivers side front wheel well. Service center has no idea and won’t fix it unless reproduced at low speeds...

    Ervaringen met aanpassing van de vering van een Model Y

    Ik heb een Model Y performance sinds September 2022 en ik ben over het algemeen erg tevreden. Zoals verwacht (en bekend) is de vering niet optimaal als het gaat om opvangen van "klappen" (drempels, gaten/putten in de weg etc.). Het is overkomelijk maar af en toe storend genoeg om er wat...

    2018 75D Model X with wobble 5-20mph

    I have a 2018 75D Model X that seems to have developed a wobble in the last couple weeks - coincidentally after I took it to a service center just before the original warranty expired. When coasting between about 5 to 20mph the car jiggles or wobbles from side to side if somebody was standing on...

    [MS-LR '22] Suspension-y noises?

    My car is about 3000 miles in; since a while now, I noticed "suspension-y" noises coming in. I took the car in, and service claimed that it was loose "mud flaps" rubbing. So I took the mud flaps off. The noises are still there. It's closest described as a "old bed sound" when I am driving...
